Yesterday at the headquarters of the natural reserves of Tarsia, the first regional forum "PSR 2014-20: The funding possibilities for Rete Natura 2000" promoted by the Sector "Parks and Protected Natural Areas" of the Department of Environment and Territory of the Calabria region for the Pan Life Project.
This starter’s guide provides a brief overview of the five EU environmental directives that target the protection and management of Europe’s freshwater and marine environments.
Climate change means that trees germinating today will be living in a much-altered climate by the time they reach middle age. The expected changes are likely to hit them hard and threaten key forest functions in the decades ahead. However, appropriate management shall enable to increase the forest habitat's adaptability.
A new IUCN report, “Marine Protected Areas and climate change: Adaptation and mitigation synergies, opportunities and challenges”,looks at how Marine Protected Areas can help combat climate change. The report gathered inputs from leading scientists, and MPA and marine climate change experts.
The ultimate goal of the Habitats and Birds Directives is to ensure the long-term sustainability of around 230 habitats and 2,000 species of animals and plants that are naturally occurring in the EU. But how much of a contribution do the two Nature Directives make to the conservation of Europe’s biodiversity as a whole? In order to answer this question, the Commission in 2013 initiated a research project to assess the significance of the presumed ‘umbrella effect’ of the Natura 2000 network.

Launched in October the project LIFE PAN - Natura 2000 Action Programme, which aims to achieve an integrated and efficient management of the Natura 2000 network in Calabria. The project will be funded under the Programme " Life Share Network Nature 2000 " and by the Regione Calabria, Regione Calabria, Dipartimento Presidenza – Settore Cooperazione, and will involve other seven Partners.
Thanks to the PAN LIFE project regional administrations will adopt a strategic tool for the conservatio, management and enhancement of the European ecological network Natura 2000 in Calabria.
